Plasti-Tech has made the lead time for an urgent order of a range of German-made HDPE injection moulded fittings supplied to Rendifield.

Rendifield is a South African manufacturer and supplier of piping systems. The order was exported to a Burkina Faso gold mine. After being contracted to supply HDPE injection moulded fittings by the gold mine, Rendifield approached Plasti-Tech for a range of German-made fittings from specialist manufacturer Bänninger.

According to Mike Enslin, managing director of Rendifield, the R600 000 order was placed with Plasti-Tech in late November 2017 for importation of HDPE injection moulded fittings from German manufacturer, Bänninger. A key challenge was the stringent lead time for the supply of the order, which was urgently needed for a processing plant expansion project at the gold mine.

“A key challenge was that the order was placed with Plasti-Tech just before the year-end shutdown and the order lead time was a key concern. However, Plasti-Tech managed to supply the order on time as per the quoted lead time,” says Enslin. Rendifield took delivery of its order in late February this year.

Apart from the quality, well-priced product, Enslin says Plati-Tech was chosen to supply this order for its service efficiency, which has since been demonstrated by the ability to meet the tight lead time.

“As a result, Plati-Tech shall remain our first-choice supply partner for high-quality imported HDPE pipe fittings,” concludes Enslin.
